One day I got it in my head that what my son really needed was (another) hand-knit sweater. I searched through my pattern collection, but didn’t see anything that sparked my interest. I wanted something with stripes, a little bit of texture, and that looked boy-ish. I created this pattern using some of Elizabeth Zimmermann’s sweater techniques, but throwing in some more modern elements as well.

Elena has thoughtfully translated the pattern into Russian here.
